House and barn

Lancaster County, Virginia 

Last week I spent several days photographing on the peninsula that lies between the Rappahannock River and the Potomac River known as Virginia's Northern Neck. This region has a rich history going back to the earliest days of Colonial America. In the nineteenth century, steamboat transportation provided access to larger markets, particularly Baltimore, and fishing and agriculture thrived.

The steamboats are gone now, and the once bustling river ports are fading away. The farm pictured above is located on a quiet bay just off the Rappahannock River very near where it empties onto the Chesapeake.
